baby rib quilt

baby rib quilt, originally uploaded by Monkicat.

I bought a kit made up of baby rib corduroy fabric at the European Quiltchampionships in Waalre, the Netherlands. Today I began stiching the 15 cm squares together and completed 5 rows. The original pattern is easy, just sew the squares together, but I think I'll embellish the top using seed beads, tiny buttons, perhaps use some velvet or silk? It was supposed to become a simple and quick cozy couch quilt to snuggle under, but now, as I work on it, other ideas are coming to mind.
It's beautiful fabric, but leaves me and my machine full of fuzzy dust bunnies!
Well, back to the sewing room!
